Accredited Test Laboratory
At E-T-A even low-voltage devices, for which approvals are not relevant, are subject to strict qualification in accordance with international standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 for test laboratories. Our accreditation to this standard authorises us to test not only our own products but also those from other manufacturers, for compliance to the applicable EU directives and to issue a declaration of conformity. Alternatively our test evidence may be used to support applications to ALPHA (the German authority for testing and certification of low voltage devices) for a European LOVAG (Low Voltage Agreement Group) certificate.
Our test laboratory has also received a Certification of Qualification from Underwriters Laboratory Inc in the USA, the first German laboratory to be accredited for testing circuit breakers to UL standard 1077 and an important independent endorsement of our competence.
